Melisson smoothly walked out, her cloak rustling quiet as she emerged from the conference room. The sentries seeing her walk past peeking under the hood could see her bear an amused smile as she distanced herself from the assembly.

The letter sent to the bulk of the representatives was one measure, and now the next which was needed as well, especially with a communication which came from Nyli III shortly after the news of the events was passed along...Senator Aegis of Lor and Affiliated Colonies said:To; Crowned Prince Tio, Sky Marshall Davis, Elysian Legate, Kohannan Mistress of Judgment, and Yamatai senators (Excluding Hanako).
I, Aegis, representative of the Lorath Matriarchy, would like to apologize for my outburst during the conference. My conduct was not that befitting an honored representative, but the conduct of someone who has allowed anger to consume their better judgment.
The anger which I displayed today in the conference was a horrible breach in the discipline which the Fyunnen hold dear, and I am personally shamed by my actions and feel that I must make an appeal to you all and beg your pardon for this infringement. I have wasted your time, patience, and respect by allowing long-time issues between the Matriarchy and the Ketsurui Princess to become something which was displayed in such a horrid and vulgar manner.
With humility and sincerity,
Senator Aegis, representative of the Lorath Matriarchy.
Senator Aegis of Lor and Affillated Colonies said:Dear Representative Melisson;
I send this letter to communicate my sincere apologies on behalf of myself and the Matriarchy for wasting your time and patience during the conference. However, I and the Matriarchy feel that you can understand the agitation which the Ketsurui Princess and Mistress of War can inflict. Long time issues have worn the Matriarchy's patience for the Ketsurui thin, and we find it difficult to maintain our composure in their presence. We hope that you recall our good treatment of you and your representative party during your visit to Lor, and remember that we do not wish to be known as barbarians, but as living beings which long for prosperity.
The Matriarchy does not forgive your sin against our people, but we feel that you are to be given an opportunity to just the same as any other who understands the values of respect and honor in the ways which you have subtly displayed them. To be enemies is not to discard an opponent as an individual, but instead to embrace that individual's will as something which is not to be taken for granted. The Matriarchy judges your will to be one of sanity and justice from your perspective, and we feel that your crusade for your kind is a valid one, and you have the right to persist in your crusade for your kind's right to exist.
Despite our respect to your cause, we must ask that you consider a peaceful resolution to the conflict which you have against the Yamatai Empire. The Matriarchy understands the burden of the lust for victory, but we also understand the need to seek peace to prevent the prolonged damage to a people. We ask that you evaluate the situation, and try to seek a peace which can benefit your kind more than sending them into a prolonged war, which will result in losses which are simply not needed at this time.
We hope that one day, we will be able to embrace your kind as friends, just the same as we embrace the Motoyoshi Empress and her Empire. For now however, we shall continue to regard you as our opposition until a peace can be found.
May the Goddess forgive the sins of both our people.
Senator Aegis, Representative of the Lorath Matriarchy
